ACIM Lesson 11 notes.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.


“[This idea] contains the foundation for the peace, relaxation and freedom from worry that we are trying to achieve.”

The lesson says that my thoughts determine the world I see. The movie screen of the world is there before me for my creation. It is my choice what to watch. How I choose to be in the world is what I will see in the world.

“Perception can make whatever picture the mind desires to see. Remember this. In this lies either Heaven or hell, as you elect.” ~ MfT 19.5:2-4


“Your thoughts determine the world you see.”

As I did the practice, when I opened my eyes and looked at the things around me, the thought came that ‘all these things are meaningless’. I corrected myself as I don’t think that’s the lesson’s intention, to make the world meaningless. Instead, we are to recognize that our thoughts about things contain judgements, fears, interpretations, and expectations. We don’t allow things to just be as they are in the moment that we are observing them.

If I am present with the things around me in the NOW (present moment/Holy Instant) I feel a sacredness … all God’s creations in a state of being. God in everything.

I feel blessed and so grateful for this moment.

Presence of Love, there you are! <3
